    or even:

    <cometcircumflex messageId="12001">London</cometcircumflex>

    if one likes the ring of "comet circumflex" for one's tags.

    And as far as the idea of having parameterized messages, with
    translation catalogs, I would join the chorus inviting William
    to investigate state of the art before attempting to invent
    something that already exists in many forms.
